The History and Heritage Lecture is funded by an endowment established in honor of Professor Chajes of the UMass CEE Department. Professor Chajes served for many decades as a professor of structural engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, compiling a remarkable record of scholarly publication and teaching excellence.  The History and Heritage Lecture is reflective of his interest in the topic, and his belief that students of civil & environmental engineering must understand the work of those who laid the foundation for the modern profession.
